Linking up with Small Things..
After finishing the first sock and deciding it just wasn't fitting right, I went back and added more rows. Finally my corn maize socks are complete! I really enjoyed this pattern and am looking forward to making a few other pairs in the future.
Reading wise -- I'm studying up on Maine. When I was little we used to spend time on Frye Island during the summer (not to mention trips to LL Bean). Chase has expressed an interest this year in wanting to vacation in Maine. Granted, Chase wants to go during winter, but I think I have convinced him that a summer trip next year would be possible. So for the past two weeks I have been working on a travel guide for us. Of course we can't just go to Maine. We have other places to stop along the way. If everything works out, we'll be taking two weeks at the beginning of summer next year and exploring the Northeast.
Oh that little purply thing? Well, today is Jessica-4's birthday. Chase asked me last night as he was heading to bed if I had made her a toy (no.. the thought honestly hadn't crossed my mind). Jess is his baby (though she oftentimes treats him like her baby) and he wanted her to have a new toy. Knowing that Jess likes ball shaped toys, I decided to make her an octopus. Currently she is happily batting it around the living room.
I find myself in an interesting standpoint with knitting right now. I am over my "I must knit for myself!" kick, and have no projects waiting for my attention (well, my sweater is, but I just don't want to work on it right now). So I am not sure what I am going to knit between now and when the mystery KAL starts next week.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th of July!
